I use a 500 MHz 4GB HDD system to run Fedora 11.
I want to use it as a router, web server and php, c++, mysql development environment,
console only. I do not need printers, graphics, electronics design, dial-up support on it.
I use vim, ssh, samba, iptables, NetworkManager for initial config. I would stop using
mail server. These are the groups currently installed:
Authoring and Publishing
Dial-up Networking Support
Server Configuration Tools
Windows File Server
The problem is that they eat up 90% of my only working partition, that is, almost 3GB.
Can you please suggest a way I can free a few hundreds of MB on HDD? The problem is that,
every time I try to remove the most useless group, I lose basic functionality, like
NetworkManger or samba client. I hope that maybe you could suggest a solution to render my
system usable for the next months, updates and some reasonably small c++ programming
I suppose that by console you mean a text-mode console. Then you can
remove all the groups. Or rather do a fresh install with all groups
unselected (even Base unselected) and then install only individual
packages you will really need (like the web/mysql server, etc). This way
you can get to cca 1 GB of used disk space, cca 200 packages installed
and cca 100 MB of used RAM after startup, all depending on number of
other stuff installed/started by default.
And NetworkManager can be easily replaced by classic "network" service,
they can use the same config files.
